SSE Announces Closure of Ferrybridge Power Station

SSE announced that the company has taken the difficult decision to close Ferrybridge Power Station by March 31, 2016. Costs at the power station have been rising due its age and environmental legislation, and it is forecast to lose £100 million over the next five years. This financial situation, combined with the political consensus that coal has a limited role in the future, means keeping the station open is not sustainable. SSE will work closely with its 172 Ferrybridge employees to redeploy them to other sites where possible, including at its nearby Keadby Gas Fired Power Station which will be returned to service; provide retraining where possible; offer voluntary release on enhanced terms; and do everything it can to avoid compulsory redundancies.
